How to mitigate transmission of COVID-19 among children in schools

In the wake of unsuccessful in-person K-12 school openings—including in Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, Nebraska, and other states—experts reexamine strategies for lowering risk of COVID-19 transmission in schools. Researchers published a list of 10 recommendations in The Conversation about how to reduce the risk for children, families, and staff at schools. These recommendations include checking everyone for symptoms at the start of each day, using quick-response testing when possible, requiring face masks, keeping desks at least six feet apart, ensuring students get their flu shot this fall, and providing sufficient emotional and behavioral supports for students during this stressful and challenging time. #covid-19 #education
